Construction continues on Slotzilla (the zipline experience located in the Fremont Street Experience) with the installation of the attraction’s cables.

Fremont Street Experience announced on their Facebook page that there will be nightly closures of the Experience to accommodate installation of the cables. Tonight through Friday, Nov. 8 and Tuesday, Nov. 12 through Friday, Nov. 15 the Fremont Street Experience will be closed from 12 a.m. to 8 a.m. In addition to the pedestrian mall of the Experience being closed, there will also be street closures. Casino Center (northbound and southbound) and 4th Street (northbound) will be closed during the same times.

Fremont Street Experience will continue to be open and offering entertainment weekdays up to midnight and later on the weekends.

Guests can also visit hotels and casinos in the downtown area during these times. They will be open. However, the closure of the pedestrian mall from midnight to 8 a.m. on weekdays means that you will want to park at a resort on the same side of the street that you are visiting. Walking through the pedestrian mall will not be allowed during the closures.

Slotzilla Zipline & Zoomline will include a 12-story slot machine-themed takeoff platform located near the intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard and Fremont Street. Riders on the upper level will take off 110 feet above ground while lying flat, flying like Superman to the stop near Golden Gate Casino. Riders on the lower zipline take off about 70 feet above ground and land on the platform near the Four Queens Hotel and Casino.

An opening date has not yet been announced for Slotzilla.
